Shave

It is highly recommended that you shave the part of the body where you are getting Laser hair removal done at least 8 hours before the treatment. This is because the head of the hair then becomes thick and it is easier for the laser to target the hair. The minute you plan on getting laser treatment done you need to make sure that you never wax or use an epilator on your body because this does not assist in Laser hair removal and your treatment will not be as effective as you would want it to be. If you have a lot of hair on your body, you may require multiple settings and it is recommended that before each sitting you shave your body. If pain is your major concern, then you should have a look at this Epilator guide that not just tells you in-depth about them but also reviews the best out there.

Stop Any Skin Treatment

If you are using a certain kind of cream or lotion or you're getting treated for any skin infection it is highly recommended that you either completely get out of the skin infection or stop the treatment before you choose to get laser treatment done. Do not use any strong creams on your body while opting in for laser because the creams could react badly with the laser and it could create more problems with your skin. Avoid using any other hair removal method apart from shaving and this includes waxing, tweezers, hair removal cream and an epilator.

Avoid Going Out In The Sun

Laser treatment can make your skin a little sensitive and when you expose your skin to the sun you could end up with irritable or reddish skin that might burn. When you choose laser treatment try to stay away from the sun as much as possible because you could be prone to a skin burn. In case you have to go out in the sun make sure that you cover the area that you are getting laser treatment done on and stay for as little while as possible in the sun.

Be Prepared For Pain

There are a number of Laser hair treatment clinics that will tell you that laser is painless and it's not going to feel anything. That is not completely true and while laser is not the most painful procedure on earth, it does hurt a little. If you are sensitive to waxing and you feel a pinch when you get your legs and hands waxed then stay prepared for bearing pain when you are getting Laser hair removal because this pain might be a little more than waxing.

Don't Miss Appointments

Laser hair removal is not going to be complete in one treatment which means that you will need multiple sessions in order to be hair free. Make sure to stick to your appointment and the gap between each appointment also crucial in determining whether or not the hair will grow back.

It Is Fast

If you thought that you would have to lay there for a really long time before the laser acts on each hair follicle of your body, then you couldn't be more wrong. Laser hair removal is really fast and it doesn't take too much time which is why it is the perfect choice for people who have busy schedules.
